Merge[change source]

The Standard Model page has a fundamental forces section with roughly the same amount of information, and the plural form "Fundamental forces" already redirected there.

I'm not sure whether the Fundamental force page should stay or be merged into it (the English Wikipedia has it as its own page), but their content should definitely be merged and the redirect inconsistencies resolved. Brantmeierz (talk) 23:54, 25 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

EN has two articles because it goes into more detail and goes beyond Standard Model. No need for any of that here, hence no need for this article, I think. Yes, we can reduce this one to a redirect. Jim.henderson (talk) 20:28, 28 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm glad to see that this proposal has not moved forward. I think the page is a logical bridge between the basic idea of a force, the generally agreed four fundamental forces and the two theories we use to make sense of the universe. It is a good idea to keep the details that the theories explain close to their explanations, (in the Standard Model page for the three forces other than gravity, if that makes more sense, in practice, than a separate page for each force). A lot of time passed while I tried to make quantum mechanics have a simpler start, and I now feel the need to take a look at this page. If it can stay short, I would count that a success. Having fundamental forces (plural) redirect anywhere other than fundamental force is plainly nonsense. I would leave it like that for now, however. --GrounderUK (talk) 22:16, 8 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
